Sap Hana News & Analysis
| Wednesday Mar 5, 2014
HANA goes to the cloud, breaks a database record, cures diseases and pokes fun at … Ok, slight exaggeration. But, truth be told, we could add more to it.
SAP wants to be the future of computing, and it wants it all. (It already owns a nice chunk of it.) More specifically, SAP wants to own big data, analytics, cloud, mobile, business applications and other technologies — in the enterprise and beyond it.

Yes, Big Data was a Big Buzzword in 2013. The technology and business press — and even mainstream media — got a piece of the action, churning out article after article about what Big Data means to you. And that's part of the problem. Big Data means lots of things to lots of people.
It might be better to think of big data as big analysis, because that's really what's happening here. It's not about the data itself, but about analyzing the data to gain insights and business value, across industries and verticals. CMSWire has kept you up-to-date on the big data trend all year — and here are our Top 10 big data stories of the year.

If it’s true that the future will be won by the companies who leverage their information best, then SAP’s customers will be dancing in dollars.
Not only because of HANA's in-memory processing capabilities and the big data informed Customer Engagement Intelligence solutions SAP introduced last month, but also because the software giant now provides some of the world’s most powerful predictive analytics capabilities via the integration of its KXEN acquisition.

What’s SAP doing at TechCrunch Disrupt -- it’s not exactly an Enterprise audience?

More big data goodness on the IBM SmartCloud.

Larry Ellison must have woken up mighty early this morning (like 5 am PT) to hear what SAP Chairman Hasso Plattner was going to say about SAP HANA, which is being called “the fastest in memory database of all time.”

SAP’s Big Data Transition Strategy will be studied in MBA programs a few years from now. The company is disrupting its industry with revolutionary solutions without disrupting its customers. Needless to say, that’s a hard thing to do.

This ain't Larry Ellison's locked down world. Unlike some other industry vendors, SAP isn't aiming to be the alpha and omega of Corporate IT. Instead the Enterprise application turned database platform provider chooses to focus on what it does best and builds deep partnerships with others in the stack.

The company that leverages data best will win the future. That’s the business credo of 2012. It’s easy to say, but not so easy to do, especially at the enterprise level.
